MONACO F1:

* HAM WIN *

MERCEDES = NO WEAK POINT!


1: HAM 2: VET 3: BOT 4:VPN 5:GAS

Red Bull’s Verstappen chased Hamilton from mid way, the two gaining a 2+ second gap between themselves and the rest of the field despite surfing a 5s penalty ()applied and of race bringing him down to 4th) for contact with Bottas out of the pit lane. From the mid 45th lap Hamilton was panicking over wrong tyres and being forced to pace his drive to preserve them.  Leclerc made an early retirement from the race after damaging his tyres hitting a barrier amongst other problems including being at a standstill, trapped in a traffic jam caused by a spinning George Russell.


Previously Mercedes have struggled at the Monaco track with problems relating to the rear of their cars and overall length.

P1 - 1st: Hamilton (Mercedes)

P2 - 1st: Hamilton (Mercedes)

P3 - 1st: Leclerk (Ferrari)

Quali - Hamilton on Pole (Mercedes)


SPANISH GP F1

After snatching a quick pull away and amassing a continued extensive lead over teammate Bottas, Hamilton wins the Spanish GP - this is the 5th Mercedes 1-2 with Verstappen taking 3rd for RedBull.  Vettel and Leclerc endlessly swapping positions in their own fight for a podium position.


SPA 2019

SPA was won by Toyota #8 Alonso, Buemi and Nakajima - a great result for Alonso, now seeking to move to new ventures outside of the WEC with Toyota and a fantastic race - they even had SNOW!


ALONSO SAYS FAREWELL TO WEC

Alonso is staying linked with Toyota on ‘new challenges’ but will be leaving involvement in the WEC, Brendon Hartley taking over his spot.  Alonso will take part in the remaining SPA and LM2019 races, sighting last year’s victory as one of his all time career highlights.


F1 - Azerbaijan Baku

MERCEDES

BOTTAS WINS



WILLIAMS

Patric Head returns to Williams at age 72 as a consultant.


SEBRING 12hrs


Pipo Derani made his 3rd Sebring 12hr win - a rare achievement!

He wins along with Eric Curran and Felipe Nasr with 348 laps for Whelen Engineering Racing with their Cadillac DPI-V.R.   Konica Minolta Cadicac #10 came second, Hartley’s team coming 3rd for Mustang Sampling Racing, #5.

Alonso did not take part in the final race but brought immense power to the track - he had previously scored pole position with a track record - the fastest ever lap of 1m40.124s! He was retained by Toyota for the WEC event on the same weekend - a correct decision - Alonso won!
